It takes more than renewable materials to turn the head of seasoned sustainable design fans. This is why our gaze fell so admirably on the line of housewares from Domestic Aesthetic  while making our way through the ICFF this past week . Domestic Aesthetic’s  motto “live well, live right” extends beyond their product line into the surrounding community, with social responsibility high on their list of priorities. With a beautiful line of handcrafted pieces, this truly green-minded company  is out to make eco-friendly easier for both buyers and manufacturers, and we have to admit that the results are beautiful.
Locally sourced, and locally manufactured, Domestic Aesthetic’s  products foster economic development. This aspect of the design philosophy is as much a key to success as the beautiful, organic curves in their Reclaimed Mahogany Spice Dish. Their certified salad bowl set will have you happily serving dishes out of it knowing that no hazardous chemicals went into the production, and that the manufacturing processes yielded little waste.
With a seemingly endless stream of greenwashing coming out of some of the larger manufacturers of housewares, this truly green design company serves as a shining example of an ethical creative endeavor. We think that Domestic Aesthetic  is proving that mainstream products can be as beautiful and affordable as they are socially responsible.
